Yeah but flash isn’t a Cody player. He plays everyone and IIRC didn’t he only pull out Cody for one match which he then promptly lost? I know BJ has been practicing his Guy up a lot. I think he might main Guy at EVO and pocket Cody for specific matches. Or if he mains Cody as usual he’ll pull out his pocket Guy more often.
Yeah, but most of the matches Cody has that are better than 5-5 are also low tier characters, like Honda. Cody is a good surprise character I think, I was saying that when Momochi pulled him out vs Daigo. It’s actually the perfect way to play him at this point IMO. He is an adaptable character and one that can capitalize on opponents mistakes quite well, pulling him out can put someone on tilt when you already know how the opponent tends to act and you’re prepared with Cody’s tools while the opponent isn’t quite prepared to know how your Cody is going to play.
I think there is a decent chance of another appearance in top 64, maybe even top 48 with the only way he appears higher is as a surprise alt from Momochi IF Momochi even makes higher than top 48. EVO can be kind of random at time due to seeding, 2/3 setup, and sheer number of entrants.
